D.  Plans for Program Improvement and Recommendations for Legislation -

The Department has proposed to consolidate the current four-program   con-
figuration into two programs. The similar programs under Part A and   Part
B will be merged into a single program. The Endowment Grant Program   will
be maintained and the Challenge Grant Program will be phased out.

The Department has proposed simplifying the eligibility rules. Instead of
using six eligibility criteria in two programs, the Department has proposed
two criteria and one program.
